Latin Name: Pterophyllum scalare Estimated Size: 4 inches
Distribution: Amazon Basin  
The fragile fins on Black Angel Fish have an almost transparent webbing on them. They are very graceful and calm which allows them to become accustomed to other fish in community aquarium environments.

Captive Care

Black Angel Fish like to swim around alot so large amounts of open water will be necessary in their aquarium. They do however also enjoy having areas with lots of plants so they can hide if they are scared. A 30 gallon tank should be big enough to accomodate both open swimming and plant filled areas.
